Collaboration of Araxxe to the newly released ETSI Standard for Billing Verification
Back in 2009, Araxxe was involved in the ETSI’s Technical Committee User Group (European Telecommunications Standards Institute) to define the TS 102 845 Billing Verification Standard.
But almost 10 years later, it is time for an update! Araxxe participated again with other vendors and operators in a project to update this important technical specification.
What is the ETSI standard and why is it important for you?
Operators, regulators and other players in the telecommunications market can find in the standard a model for designing and operating the check-up of metering and billing processes and systems. In addition, it provides operators guidelines and best practices on which information and how the billing chain should be checked.
What has been updated since the first version written in 2009?
Several new recommendations have been made concerning billing verification of value-added services (e.g. mobile money). On top of this, the standard contains advice on how to control promotional offers that are currently common practice in the telecommunications market (e.g. unlimited offers).
The standard also contains a new chapter about the test methodology which could be applied for billing verification; in other words, what should be done technically to make sure an operator has full control of the billing chain.
